Found this Restaurant through word of mouth from Golfer's staying at LaCala golf resort. The food was excellent (fillet steak to die for). All four of us were delighted in our choices and the atmosphere was great, definitely go on our next visit

Our second visit to this wonderful restaurant, taking friends with us. They were just as impressed as we were as the food was really well cooked and presented. Thank you for a top class meal from the relatively modest 20 Euro menu. The staff a very pleasant and efficient. We can highly recommend El Jenete.

We had a late lunch here 8 March on a perfect weather day outside under the shades. The food was all very delicious and the service was friendly and charming. Our only criticism was that the portions were too large for us. Overall, however, a really lovely restaurant in a beautiful location.

Really can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food is exquisite and the presentation is unbelievable. The portions are extremely generous and the staff are super - friendly (they remember us every time we come back). The added wow factor is the view, sit back on the patio and drink in the huge panaroma of the surrounding countryside and the... More

We've been going here for some years now. The menu doesn't change much, but why would they need to. Excellent barbecued meats, good service, and on Sundays a really good musical duo.

Their website states music or entertainment on Thursdays and Saturdays. Why mention this I hear you ask? Well this restaurant has 2 set menus. 1 for music nights at 25 euros which carries a 5 euro surcharge per person, the other 20e but no surcharge. I booked a table for 8 on a Wednesday evening. We are given the music... More
